Learn how to How to Upload Cricut Print and Cut Files to Design Space using a PNG file we created in Adobe Photoshop. You won’t believe how easy it is!
Welcome back to another post in the 24 Week Cricut Post Series! In the last post, I told you how to create your own PNG Files in Adobe Photoshop. Those files are PERFECT for Cricut Print and Cut Files that you can upload to Cricut Design Space…which is what I’m going to teach you in this tutorial.
What you’ll need to Upload Cricut Print and Cut Files to Cricut Design Space:
- Cricut Explore Air
- Cricut Design Space – if you haven’t already tried the new program, go HERE and HERE to get all the details. If you are on the old program, try this tutorial.
- PNG File – A PNG file is a flat image that has a transparent background. The transparent background makes it easy for Cricut to recognize where it’s supposed to cut.
- On your dashboard in Design Space, click on NEW PROJECT.
- Next, click on the UPLOAD.
- Once you’re on the upload page, click on UPLOAD image, then select browse.
- You’ll select the image you want to upload, then click OPEN.
- Depending on how much detail is in your image, you’ll select either Simple, Moderately Complex, or Complex. My image has many different colors in it, so I would select COMPLEX. Now, select Continue.
- On the next page, you can edit your image by erasing anything you don’t want on it. This is handy if you don’t have a PNG image with a transparent background. You’ll select the magic wand, then anywhere on the white background and it will delete it for you. When you are finished, select CONTINUE.
- You’ll then have the option to save it as a Cricut Print and Cut File, or save it as a cut image. Select Print and Cut, then click on SAVE.
- Now, you’ll click on the image(s) you want in your project and select INSERT IMAGES.
- From here, you can resize it. Remember Print and Cut Files can only be 8.75″X6.25″.
- Select MAKE IT. Once it detects your Cricut, you can Print and Cut!
I’m loving the way this Cricut Print and Cut project turned out! You can get the details for making this in Adobe Photoshop, and if you’ve got that covered, grab the Hello Sunshine Font and Bright Life Watercolor Set to make your own PNG file.
